Abstract

Supplementing finishing pigs genetically predisposed to lipid deposition with atocopheryl acetate above 12 IU/lb of feed for as long as 70 d did not improve color stability of fresh and cured pork. Tissue a-tocopherol levels were similar across dietary treatments and higher than predicted. Muscle accumulation of a-tocopherol may be related to the rate and extent of lipid deposition in muscle. Also, chill temperature and carcass chill rate variability, under spray chill conditions, did not influence fresh pork color stability when carcasses with excessive amounts of external fat were utilized.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 19, 1998
